A continuous member of Lodge 508 in Detroit, Michigan, since his initiation in 1917. Shiplett’s active interest in Brotherhood affairs led to his election to the office of local chairman in 1931.

Included in the large crown attending that party were numerous friends, officials of the railroad and the brotherhood, as well as countless fellow workers, all of whom applauded his attaining a well deserved retirement.
